A few personal favorites…..
I can’t believe the holiday season is upon us already! My goal for this year is simple: enjoy it. My husband and I get the wind knocked out of our lungs every time we open our computer and a memory of our children from 2, 5, or 8 (!!) years ago pops up on our screen. A sound reminder that time goes way too fast. If nothing else, this is the time of year to really slow down, be present together and make memories. For me, the best part of this time of year is those moments in a cozy living room enjoying the company of my family and friends. This is the best part of life – where nothing else matters but the people you are with at that very moment. Good food, lots of laughs, and great wine (obviously).
In terms of this blog, I don’t think I could have ever dreamed…. I mean, I really have no words. Let’s just say I pinch myself a lot that all of you are here. Your comments, thoughtful notes and emails fill me up in ways I find it hard to express in writing. Basically what I am trying to say is that I am grateful for each and everyone of you. I know how busy everyone’s life can be, especially this time of year, and the fact that so many of you take time out our your day to visit The Motherchic is truly humbling.
Abby and I decided that in order to give YOU all our favorite thing, the gift of time with loved ones, we would put together a massive 2017 gift guide to take some of the guesswork out of your shopping. You really won’t have to leave your living room couch! All of the products in this guide are clickable and have been hand selected for a specific reason. These are all gifts that we would be proud to give and others that we would love to receive (hint hint!). Throughout the season we will elaborate on a few of these gift guides in the form of blog posts, but consider these our top picks.
This guide is also downloadable so you can refer to it later as well. We have a little something for everyone and did our best to embody the spirit of the season throughout with some of our favorite traditions, recipes, personal favorites and and even a playlist. Because what is life without a great playlist? From me to you….. ENJOY!
